I've currently got a 2000 NB, with yellow bilstein HD stock replacement shocks. Stock everything else.
My summer setup if Bfgoodrich COMP-2's on 195/50 r15 tires - I'm currently researching and trying to finalize my decision on winter tire size. I'm thinking of going with the X-Ice XI3.
It appears the thread below mine ,fellow user (
) Erat runs 195/60/15 (which are the same size at the 185/70 r14's total diameter) without rubbing (nb year unknown). In this thread from 2011 (185/70/14s on the MX
) 185/70 r14 was used on a NA1 without rubbing.
I've tried to find the largest size I could for maximal snow clearance & pothole risk, but would like to know you guys think this increased size (versus 185/60
) would provide significantly
more sidewall flex and worse driving feel
(by the seat of the pants). I have a set of 14" and 16" rims waiting for usage, so both r14 and r16 are available.
I'm slowly fixing up the miata. Currently I am absorbing all the information I can read in the turbo threads.
Thank you for feedback fellas.
EDIT: I wanted to get The blizzak WS80's but they only come in 185/65 r15. I'm pretty sure that wouldn't fit correct ?
